9780198129684: Jane Austen and the War of Ideas

It is often said that Jane Austen in the countryside remained isolated from the great events of her time. But as Marilyn Butler points out in Jane Austen and the War of Ideas, Austen was not isolated from reading novels, and novels carried controversy. The sentimental novel of the previous generation, the Jacobin novel of William Godwin, the philosophical comedy of Robert Bage and Maria Edgeworth--all conveyed their own kind of ideological meaning. By recognizing Austen's relationship to the literature of ideas, Butler offers acute readings of each of the novels and an intellectual context in which to see them as a whole.

About the Author:

Marilyn Butler is at University of Cambridge.

Review:


"The work is stimulating and controversial. Highly original in concepts, it is given authority by topnotch scholarship; Butler knows the most minor 18th-century novels as well as what must be all Austen criticism....Highly recommended for all students of the novel."--Choice

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1988. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Interest in Jane Austen has never been greater, but it is revitalized by the advent of feminist literary history. In a substantial new introduction Marilyn Butler places this book, which was first published in 1975, within the larger tradition of post-war criticism, from the generation of Edmund Wilson, Lionel Trilling, and F.R. Leavis to that of the now-dominant feminist critics. Professor Butler argues that Austen herself lived in contentious times. Like Wordsworth and Coleridge, she served her literary apprenticeship in the 1790s, the decade of the Terror and the Napoleonic Wars, an era in England of polemic and hysteria. Political partisanship shaped the novel of her youth, in content, form, and style. In this book, she now examines the very different schools of writing about Austen, and finds in them some unexpected continuities, such as a willingness to recruit her to modern aims, but a reluctance to engage with her own history. When the book first came out it attracted attention for its fresh, controversial approach to ideas on Austen. The new edition shows how the arrival of feminism has made the task of the literary historian more vital and challenging than ever. Marilyn Butler has written a deeply provoking, exciting book. New Statesman There can be no doubt of the immense value for the critical reader of this impressive exposition of conflicting views concerning the individual and society at the end of the eighteenth century. Review of English Studies interesting, knowledgeable, and controversial. Times Higher Education Supplement. Codice libro della libreria AAV9780198129684
